German brand Konig has produced a new long leather riding boot specially designed for children.

The firm says it is responding to the growing need for smart and correctly-fitted boots for competing for children competing in the various equestrian disciplines.

The new boot, called The Youngster and available in black only and retails at £250.

Its design — a classic and comfortable square shape — promises comfort for growing feet and will not pinch.

A spokesman from Konig said: “To combat the growth spurts that some children have, Konig has a wide variety of foot sizes and calf widths and lengths to get a great fit for most children.”

The Youngster is made from black box calf leather and features include a rear, full-length zip with a protective heel strap and top press stud fastening.

It is available in sizes 28-37 in a variety of lengths and widths.
